Since the phone company has eliminated dialing “POPCORN” to get the current time, you can use the Internet to update your computer to the correct time.
If you’re running Windows XP Home, here’s how you do it.
1) Click on the time clock at the bottom right of your screen. It should bring up the following screen.
You’ll see a tab called “Internet Time”. Click on it and you’ll get the next screen.
Where it says Server, type in
and then click on “Update Now”.
You should see a message that the clock is now syncrhonized. If you get an error, try typing in
time-a.nist.gov as the server.
Hit “Apply” and you’re done!
